This photo taken sometime right after July 22, 1913 in worth Co. GA, at the old Newton Family Farm.  It is of the surviving members of the James Wesley Newton family of Worth County, GA.

Emma Elizabeth Kilcrease Davis, Joshua Davis was the son of Darling {Darlin} and Martha Hyatt Davis of Schley Co. GA prior to moving to Worth Co. after marriage as an adult. Mary A. Emma Elizabeth Kilcrease Davis was the daughter of Benjamin F. Kilcrease of Schley Co. GA prior to moving later in life to Worth Co. GA where he later died. I don't have his wifes name yet.
Sitting in Chair beside Mother: Viola Newton
She was the baby of the family at the time of her Fathers death. She later became Viola Newton Albritton Andrews. She married Clifford Albrittion as his first and old wife in Arcadia, FL. Desoto Co. where there lived at the time two different men by this same name. Together they had (4) children and later on divorced and she later in life remarried a James Andrews they called him PeeWee. I was witness to his wedding as it took place at the home of her Brother in Highlands Co. FL in Lake Placid on Royal Palm Ave. in the 1960's I was very young at that time, but remember the wedding!
Standing off towards the back on the Mother's right side:
Nathan Wesley Newton Sr. Who became the man of the house in 1911 at the ripe age of 8 years old. He tired to help his Mother by working the family farm like an adult, dropping out of school to do so.
Later they left the farm and went into Sylvester to the home of Mary's Father. Where they reamined for a time. Later on in 1922 they removed to Eagle Lake Florida to live near Mary's brother Nathan Davis, and after that they removed to Avon Park, FL. where the children continued to grow to adulthood and settle down into lives as adults in those communities. Later still Mother Mary returned to GA to the home of a Sister to live out her remaining years. She died in 1919 in Pelham, GA.
I have Quite a bit on these folks and research them folks are welcome to e-mail me about them at any time.
